In the rifle 50-metre 3-position events in both junior and the senior men’s categories, he shot above his weight to end at the top. Tomar, with 453.5 in the men’s final, defeated Kailash Chand of Army by 0.7 point.

On the other hand, in the junior final, Tomar ended up with total points of 454.1. He managed to beat Harshit Binjwa by four points to claim the gold medal.

Vijayveer Sidhu got the better of Adarsh Singh, after both shot an identical score of 586, to bag the gold medal in the junior men’s sports pistol category. Udayveer finished at the third place in the same event.
